    1st Amendment anyone?

    Opinion/political writers have huge leeway when they are attacking public figures.  

    Anyone remember the accusations that Hillary Clinton killed Vincent Foster?  Would a lawsuit have had any chance at all in that case?  Isn't that a stronger case then Mann has?

    So Mann goes to court, and the court says "sorry, 1st Amendment", and the awful NRO says: "see, we won!"
